(July 15, 2022) Nearly 300 Food Lion associates will be celebrating over 30 years of service this year. Among them are three long-term associates from the Ocean City store.
“Recognizing associates who have shared their gifts and talents with Food Lion and nourished their neighbors for decades is incredibly important to us,” said Meg Ham, president, Food Lion. “These dedicated associates have touched the lives of their fellow associates and customers alike. We are so fortunate to have such committed associates and I so appreciate the care, compassion and commitment they share with Food Lion and the towns and cities they serve.”
Food Lion recognizes these associates celebrating 30, 35, 40, and 45 years of service with the Years of Service Award.
Each year, the omnichannel retailer holds a recognition event to share appreciation and gratitude for associates who have achieved these service milestones. At the Years of Service Awards event, each associate’s name, position, location and service milestone are read aloud and celebrated.
From the Ocean City store, located at 118th Street, Sandra Akers, perishable manager, and Kevin Therres, produce sales manager, were recognized for 30 years of service.
Tracey Land, customer service manager, was honored for her 35 years of service.
